Years of vandalism, car break-ins and illegal dumping has prompted the Sherman Board of Selectmen to propose funding for security cameras at some parks in town.  Surveillance cameras could be added to Volunteer Park.  Sherman residents will have to vote on capital funding at a yet to be scheduled town meeting.  The Board of Selectmen is aiming for a vote on September 14th when other capital items will be decided.  The pilot program for the cameras would cost about $1,250, but residents will be asked to approve $2,000 so there's a contingency.  People have driven over the grass causing damage.  There were issues at Veteran's Park with people littering and reports of car break-ins.
